The June 17th Charleston Church Massacre has prompted Grammy Award winning recording artist Tye Tribbett to launch a “Hate Won’t Win” concert to benefit the families of the nine people who were shot to death in that tragic incident. The concert features some of the biggest names in Christian music such as gold-selling artist Israel Houghton, “Break Every Chain” singer Tasha Cobbs, R&B star Akon’s protégé Mali Music and Columbia, SC native Travis Greene. The concert takes place Thursday, July 23 @7 PM at The Medallion Conference Center in Columbia, SC and caps the first day of Tribbett’s second annual “The Chosen Music Mentorship” conference for church worship leaders.
“Gospel is the good news,” Tribbett says of his use of music as a healing tool to create racial harmony in the Carolinas. “By spreading the music we induce hope, and we train new worship leaders so they are equipped with the same intent to go fearlessly where some have lost hope and to boldly declare through this gospel that there is yet hope.”
The Chosen Music Mentorship Program runs July 23 -25 and boasts some of the country’s top gospel practitioners such as producer Donald Lawrence and rising star Jonathan McReynolds to provide spiritual and practical workshops that will improve the lives and ministries of the participants. It all takes place at The Medallion Conference Center, 7309 Garners Ferry Road, Columbia, SC 29209. The General public can call (973) 351-1569 or email@example.com for more information and detail.
Tye Tribbett leaped on to the national scene in 2004 with his riveting Top Ten radio smashes “No Way” and “Everything.” His frenetic energy and showmanship catapulted him to the top of the gospel field with subsequent radio hits such as “Victory,” “No Other Choice” and “If He Did It Before… Same God.” Four of his five albums have peaked at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Albums sales chart and his latest “Greater Than” won the artist two Grammy Awards including Gospel Album of the Year.
